Program Notes

Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin opens the performance with graceful reflection, dedicated to the composer’s friends lost in the First World War. Florence Price composed her Third Symphony amid the Chicago Renaissance, a powerful backdrop for writers and artists like Langston Hughes, Margaret Bonds, and Richard Wright. Price's engaging work reflects her growth as a composer. Clara Wieck-Schumann completed her imaginative Piano Concerto when she was about to turn 16. The virtuosic passages sparkle in the hands of soloist Beatrice Rana. Ravel’s Bolero, an audience favorite, closes the concert with a brief spotlight on every instrument of the Orchestra.

Please note: This concert was previously titled Yannick Conducts Price, Schumann, and Ravel.
